Clarke's Three Laws.
1. When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
2. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
3. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
Arthur C Clarke - "Hazards of Prophecy: The Failure of Imagination", in Profiles of the Future (1962)
1. “A solemn stillness. A sacred place.” (Note that this sacred place is the Aumakua to which the prayer is directed.)
2. “Expression of certainty of something doing or to be done.” (Note the faith indicated here.)
3. “Now, at this present time, immediately.” (Note the idea of the instant reaction of the Aumakua in answering the correctly made prayer.)
4. “Seed or seeds.” (Note: This is the basic symbol of thought forms in a prayer.)
5. (Root ano alone). “The meaning of a word or phrase. Likeness or image of a thing. The moral quality of an action, as good or evil, or the moral state of the heart. To change or transform. To change the external appearance. To set apart or consecrate for a special purpose. Doubt or fear.” (Note how these several meanings can indicate some phase of the making of the prayer thought forms. The guilt complexes are implicated in the “moral” element. The image of the thing or circumstances desired, is found in the thought form prayer, which is transformed or changed into the answer to prayer by the Aumakua. In making a prayer, the element of fear or doubt must always be present and can never be safely ignored, for if there is a thought form of doubt or fear mingled with the prayer inadvertently, it is a sowing on barren rocks or among thistles.)
